Year 6 Public Speaking Competition
Today, Year 6 pupils competed in the annual Public Speaking Competition at Westholme. The pupils spent a lot of time planning and practising their speeches which they performed to their peers, class teachers and family. The talks were interesting and varied, ranging from ice skating, the work of William Booth and Top Gear to name but a few!
Former student, Liz Singleton adjudicated the competition and was amazed by the high standard of speakers. Children spoke with clarity, confidence and provided a wealth of knowledge on their chosen topic.
It was extremely difficult to select three winning talks for boys and girls but congratulations went to:
3rd place – Amelia Lowe and Hasan Majid
2nd place – Tilly Daley and Oliver Newbury
1st place – Katie Backhouse and Aryaman Garg
